    25/01/2023 Duração: 42min

We still find that this will be relevant in your group's setting today!7 Civilities  Listen with your eyes (don’t roll your eyes) acknowledge their view Sleep and hungry—know the right time Social media news vs. Good news Neither side may trivialize or dismiss the concerns of the other.

Both sides should aim to help each other understand their own experience and perspective using a type of speech (words and tone) that can be heard by the other. Both sides should accept the fundamental ground rule of life in a free society: the essence of liberty is the right to be different and to act wrongly in the eyes of others—you will need to agree to disagree. ★ Support this podcast ★
